Shin injury rules Amir out of Sri Lanka ODIs

It was one bad day which cost Pakistan the first Test; not even that, it was probably a couple of bad sessions.

Chandimal followed his 155 not out in the opening Test with another confident innings, collecting five boundaries as the Sri Lankan pair blunted Pakistan's bowling attack.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said the 25-year-old went for an MRI scan and was advised to rest for two to three weeks, which means he will also take no further part in the second Test that Pakistan need to win to level the two-match series. Pakistan's joy after ending the mammoth 146-run partnership between Chandimal and centurion Dimuth Karunaratne was shortlived as Niroshan Dickwella's entry only made matters worse. The pitch in Dubai shouldn't play a whole lot differently than Abu Dhabi, so there are runs to be had again.

Dimuth Karunarathne's fighting 196 lifted Sri Lanka's spirits on Day Two of the second Test at Dubai.

Just when he was nearing a maiden double century, Karunaratne agonisingly fell short by four runs as he played a rare loose shot just outside off as the ball took the inside edge, hit that batsman on his thigh before clattering the stumps.

As if that was not enough, Karunaratne put on 59 for the sixth wicket with Dilruwan Perera, who scored a polished 58.

With no other frontline spinner in the side, leg-spinner Yasir Shah has been forced to the bulk of the bowling.

The FIR claims that the Sri Lankan left-arm spinner, who became the first bowler to take 100 wickets against Pakistan, was seen inside the hotel rooms of the Pakistani batsmen late at night. Openers Sami Aslam and Shan Masoon remained unbeaten on 30 and 15 respectively. After all their struggles at home against India - plunging to record whitewashes - which led to resignations of their selectors, then losing Angelo Mathews to injury; to come back from all that and beat Pakistan at a venue they have never lost in, it was incredible.
